WI, latest addictions and I WON!

As expected – there was a gain – 0.9.  I basically gained what I lost last week.  Oddly enough I’m ok with it.  It was smaller than I expected too!  What I’m most happy about is that I’m back on track.  That crazy feeding frenzy I was on came to a halt yesterday.  I’m back in control and it feels good!

Tonight we’re skipping our usual Pizza night & having Dream Dinner Mexican Meatballs – I’ve got to point them out, but I suspect it won’t be as bad as my pizza blow up last week.  But – never fail – pizza will be back in tomorrow!  😀  Can’t skip my pizza!  Since it’s no meat Friday tomorrow I figured it would be a good day – PLUS it’s a gym day tomorrow morning, so hopefully I’ll be riding off of that high & not eating too much.

I was excited last night to see a box on my doorstep!  My order of PB2 came.  I’m obsessed with this stuff – both the plain & chocolate.  I probably eat at least 2 servings a day if not more.  I usually buy it from a local “Diet Shop” in town, but it runs close to $6 a jar, which the way I go through it is insane, so I made the decision to buy it in bulk from Bell Plantation.  Thanks to the WW message boards I got a nice coupon code which saved me a lot!

Last night I actually put some chocolate PB2 in my banana smoothie and WOW – talk about DELICIOUS!  A must try if you’ve never had it before!

My other addiction has always been CHEESE!  I think I was a mouse in a previous life.  It’s so bad that when we head upstate we take a day to go to Vermont to one of our favorite places – The Cheese House.  The owners, Rich & Jody Serraro are not only the nicest people you’ve ever met, but they have the most AMAZING cheese! 

Anyway, back to my product rave…  I frequent a local family website, particularly the diet & fitness board they have.  Always filled with great tips & ideas to stay on track.  Well one day someone mentioned their favorite Trader Joe finds – Mini Brie Bites!  Heaven in a little package!  They’re only 2 pp each.  For something like cheese I need portion controlled pieces.  If you put me down with a block of cheddar or a wheel of brie it will disappear….along with your fingers if you try taking it away from me.  😮  As you can see in this picture it’s creamy too!

One of my favorite blogs that I subscribe to is My Bizzy Kitchen.  She recently ran a contest to win an autographed copy of Rocco DiSpirito’s new book – Now Eat This Diet.  Biz was asking readers to share what motivates them to lose weight.  As you know hands down for me it’s my family.  My past & present family.  Well, I was one of the winners!  I’m so excited that I was chosen & can’t wait to try out some of the recipes – and of course blog about it!  That day Biz posted a mushroom lasagna – two of my favorite things!
